Degrassi: Next Class is the second incarnation of The Next Generation but is also considered its own show. After TeenNick and MTV Canada dropped the series, the show was picked up by Netflix and Family Channel. This “reboot” of the series was initially set to be the fifteenth season of “The Next Generation” (as casting calls were made for the fifteenth season) but ultimately Netflix and Epitome decided to start it off as a new show, to not confuse new viewers that would watch it on Netflix. Season one was released on Netflix January 15, 2016, and started airing January 4, 2016 on Family's new teen programming block, F2N. Fourteen cast members from season 14 of Degrassi also reprised their roles.
